Weekly Black & White Square Photo

Cumberland Station

This weeks B&W photo is just a little different. Obviously you can see that. My purpose for this photo was to create an image that has a look or a sense of being old.

First, this photo was taken with a DSLR and an 18 - 70mm lens at 1/80 sec & f/5.6. In Photoshop Elements I converted it to a B&W image, cropped it for the square look and re-sized it for web viewing. I then gave it an antique look , added some vignetting and finished it off with a touch of shapening.

I kind'a like this photo and I think it does have an old look to it, which is what I was trying to achieve. However, I would like to hear from you and what your thoughts are about this image; whether you like it or not and why. If you would leave a comment below I would be very grateful for it. Thanks.

Yeah, this is my old world view of the Cumberland Station (Western Maryland Station) and you are welcome to it.
